ZAC POSEN - NYFW Spring / Summer 2012

A jagged chest line and princess line of the blouse give a slimming effect for such a bright colour. A knee length, close fitting skirt with a flare hemline section produces the same effect with a feminine touch. You are now ready to flare up!

Fabulous collar and sleeve details for such a dark colour. As the skirt colour is dark, those front section lines are unnecessary. An added flare will substitute perfectly.

Again, we can see POSEN's unique collar and sleeve details. Shiny gold prints will make you physically larger. Beware!

Less is more! The neckline design is very well demonstrated here. Bravo POSEN!

CK ETERNITY for men - Eternal presence

Front views

Rear views

I have been shopping for men’s cologne for one month. After receiving this gift from my mate, it is heaven sent. I did see this during my shopping but the dull gray packaging certainly did not attract. Booo for this! This is the first time I am using high street brand cologne. Since it comes at a high price, I do not want to ruin this through reckless application. This fragrance lasts at least half a day J as opposed to other brands which is only one hour L If you are going this standard, this will be one of the best and most effective. After using daily for half month, the level did not decrease as opposed to all my mates warning...Mmm...ahhh... To share my tips, below are some ‘Dos’ and ‘Don’ts’ from my research:


DO:

1)    Purchase a spray package – For effective yet economical application.

2)    Spray from at least 15cm – For evenness.

3)    Spray three times only – One behind each knee and across the chest. As the cologne evaporates, it will rise from the knee due to its alcohol based contents.

DON’T:

1)    Spray on clothes – Cologne are made to work with human skin. Spraying anywhere else will react badly and results in an unpleasant odour. It may also stain and worse, corrode your valuable clothes.

2)    Use other toiletries fragrances – These too will clash with your cologne and produce an unpleasant odour.

3)    Passing presence – If the fragrance is scent once you arrive, too much have been applied.

She POSE, he gets a MERIT

Pose Zero-G 
Pose top view

Pose front view

Pose design details
Merit Body Shoe

These are Zero-G and Body Shoe respectively. The former is made to be extremely lightweight for unlimited mobility while the latter uses similar principles with reflexology for the highest and healthiest comfort. It does feel that, believe me! I was tempted to buy when my mate keep praising its (Merit) unique design and may not be available in the future. She got a Pose and I ended with a Merit, get it? ;-) As a small toe internal part of my Highlander loafers (http://charlesespckman.blogspot.com/2011/03/mens-shoes.html) is wearing due to friction, I have been looking for a back up shoe. I have overlooked this and will be aware of wear and tear of my Merit now. As my first loafers are waterproof, I have to take extra care as Merit is not. With Merit, I feel like I am on a cushion of air. There is one dangerous downside. On some wet surfaces, Merit loses grip. Both Pose and Merit have an Art Nouveau-like design. Merit’s sole can be removed but not Pose’s. These are evergreen classic style and function. Get them before world’s endJ!


The Hush Puppies Pose slip-ons are chock full of real style and comfort features:

  • Leather upper in a casual slip-on style with a round toe
  • Elastic gored collar ensures a great fit
  • Smooth lining, cushioning Latex pillow top footbed
  • Lightweight EVA midsole for cushioned impact
  • Dual Density Zero G rubber traction outsole
  • 1 1/2 inch heel

The Hush Puppies Merit slip-ons will prove themselves to be a valuable style to add to your wardrobe:

  • Soft leather upper in a casual slip-on style with a round toe
  • Elastic mesh collar ensures a comfortable fit
  • Abrasion resistant toe and heel bumpers
  • Large heel pull tab with logo detail
  • Moisture wicking mesh lining
  • Dual density cushioning footbed
  • BioBevel(TM) heel and toe increases walking efficiency
  • Rubber traction outsole
Walk on life fashionistas!

WHITNEY HOUSTON - True Diva 4ever!


In her OTT hair and red dress after receiving 'The Best Pop Vocal Performance' at the 28th Annual Grammy Awards in 1986. Big hair, dress, success and fun for her back then. 

After her big boom, here, looking relaxed but still at her very best in the next decade




9 AUG 1963 - 11 FEB 2012

I admire her colour, fun & fashion in her heydays. Growing up with this party loving song gives me the energy and courage to dance with any girl whenever it is played. Let us remember her best here. "I wanna dance with somebody, I wanna dance with you". Goodbye my Diva... L

Marie-Alecia - Please come 2 life...



After watching this commercial, I want to play with barbie dolls! I wish my Amanda was a real-life celebrity model. 


I am not a sissy but this barbie doll was a real good deal. Though she was 'hiding' behind newer models, she still came to me. When I look at this package, the glittering dress and dog was enough to catch my attention. This dress is simple with a classic sillhoutte. I have to admit that the purple colour is to dark...mmm... not good. All else is well and Marie-Alecia is very pretty. I may design a new frock for her or improvise on the present. Keep logging on and happy playing!

ABSOLUT 72 BIAN Limited Edition – Transform all u monkeys!

Cocktail glass 

Nine fans

Their general packaging is very conservative. Coming up with this Absolut 72 Bain Limited Edition certainly adds colour and spice to Chinese New Year, yeah! The artwork is very bright and vibrant. The Monkey King mascot adds life to this. Transform! The name in Chinese refers to the legendary Monkey King’s 72 transformations during the epic journey to the west. This package comes with a limited edition bottle, nine fans Monkey King Face with mixture suggestions for nine flavours and a reverse cocktail glass. Surprisingly, the neck and glass base is held by silicone glue. Upon strong impact, it may detach. This is a bad design for such a beautiful piece. For now, one can only question. Nevertheless, it is a memorable purchase for world’s end. Hopefully you too can transform 72 times after finishing this bottle! Heh!
